Nickel rings are the protagonists of the version that Raf Simons has created for Dr. Martens in his collaboration with the firm, which is part of the 1460 Remastered project to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the silhouette.

Dr. Martens x Raf Simons

The rings are hooked onto the smooth black leather of the classic silhouette, with a modest white logo showing the names of the firms.

This adornment is inspired by the popularity of customization that emerged in the late 70s, during the New Romantic and Punk club scene, a motif we’ve seen in the Belgian designer’s latest collections, while the way the boots are integrated is a nod to mid-century design furniture.

If you dream of getting a piercing but your mother doesn’t give you permission, these boots will help you give the touch you are looking for to your style with a tasteful extra.
